One of Hertfordshire's friendliest pubs, The Valiant Trooper is located in the quintessentially English village of Aldbury
The Valiant Trooper is the CAMRA mid-Chilterns 'pub of the Year 2009' - a quintessentially English country pub and restaurant nestled in one of the most picturesque villages in Hertfordshire.
Situated at the foot of the Chiltern hills between Tring and Berkhamsted, it’s the perfect location for scenic walks and cycling on the Ridgeway or in the nearby National Trust-owned Ashridge forest. Alternatively, if it’s a leisurely stroll you’re after, Aldbury has lots to offer from its 13th century church to its duck pond and ancient whipping post and stocks. The 17th century cottages that comprise the Trooper have served as alehouses for several centuries.
The Head Chef and his team are renowned for innovative twists on British classics with the emphasis on high quality local and seasonal produce served with the minimum of fuss. From the traditional menu to the evening specials board, we’re talking big flavoured, unpretentious food.
The Valiant Trooper has two cosy bars and a separate 52-cover restaurant. With its open log fires, beamed ceilings and original features, it’s always alluring whether you’re after a quick pint, a bar snack or a full sit-down meal. It also has a sizeable beer garden which includes a recently installed wooden children’s adventure trail. The restaurant is available for private hire for groups or parties. The full menu is served all day every day.
Children are always welcome. There is a home-cooked healthy children’s menu or half-sized main menu portions. Baby-changing facilities and highchairs are also available. Well behaved dogs on leads are also welcome.
For accommodation please see our sister ship, The Greyhound Inn, only a few yards up the road in Aldbury.
